ALL THINGS ARE NEW
Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion blot out my transgressions.Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are proved right when You speak and justified when You judge. Surely I have been a sinner from birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me…Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me and I will be whiter than snow…Create in me a pure heart, O God,and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from Your presence or take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me.Then will I teach transgressors Your ways,
and sinners will turn back to You.
-PSALM 51 : KING DAVID
